Visual aids direct you around the grounds of the most popular night market in North America.

Featuring a new theme every year (this year it’s “Summer Chill Party”), the street food offered at the market is authentic Asian and is one of the most popular attractions. The food stands vary from common savoury and sweet. Selections range from meat skewers to ice cream treats to new and innovative dishes such as pho fries and hybrid sushi. You can quench your thirst at one of the many drink stands offering lemonade, fresh juice and more.

Other features at the fair, open til mid-October, include family-friendly activities such as carnival games, amusement rides and live musical performances.

You can also find plenty of bargains on a variety of knickknacks and computer accessories as well as great deals on clothing and general merchandise.

To maximize your enjoyment, be aware that as closing time nears, prices drop for perishables. So do the large crowds.

Overall, this is an ideal tour guide to follow for your journey at one of summer’s most popular attractions.  

Another tip. Instead of fighting your way through traffic and becoming frustrated trying to find a parking spot, take transit. The Canada line stops at the River Rock Casino Resort, a five-minute walk to the Richmond Night Market.

The night market is open Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. to midnight and Sundays and holidays from 7 to 11 p.m. Admission is $4.75, and free for seniors (60 and over) and children (8 and under). There are also affordable “zoom passes” to be had which also provides quicker access onto the grounds.
